I've started using a new time tracking tool. I have never been good at using those, but I do see their importance and I have used my own.
At any rate, as a result, being a couple of weeks into the job I have tended to forget to turn on my time tracker and so tend to fall short some hours. Even when I don't forget or don't think I forget, I am falling short some hours.
What should I look at to figure out why I am not capturing a full 8 hours on my time tracker? I mean aside from forgetting, as I have gotten better with that, but still losing time.
Could it be context switching and putting out fires? How can I measure what is going on?
